Caregiver Support Group
Connecting with other caregivers in caregiver support group meetings is an excellent way to acquire information, ideas and tips for caregiving. In addition, support group participants feel affirmed, renewed and re-energized after sharing their stories and hearing the stories of their fellow caregivers.
Holy Cross supports all and any caregivers through the support group meetings that are held each month. During the meetings, caregivers are given opportunities to share their stories, ask questions and feel affirmed for all they are doing in their journeys as a caregiver.
Meetings: Usually the 2nd Thursday of the month at 1:30pm in classroom J at Holy Cross
